Lost SOSA Episodes…Found!

Hey, there!

I’ve told the story often about how one bit of training I got made a huge difference in my acting career.

(And although what I’m about to share with you has the words “screen acting” in it, it also applies perfectly to VO.)

And that one bit of training, the Secrets of Screen Acting podcast, just got a fair bit more interesting and helpful.

Why?

Because 22 previously lost episodes were recently found. And you can have them at no extra charge.

About a year and a half before I booked my role as Eric Doyle, the Puppetmaster on NBC’s Heroes, I came across an amazing book: Secret of Screen Acting, by Patrick Tucker.

It was filled with answers to things about acting that were so mysterious and unknown to me as a new actor.

And absorbing that book, and engaging Patrick in a podcast, became a private master class for me. And it is almost completely responsible for the long run I had on Heroes happening, as I was supposed to be killed in the first episode I appeared in.

(They decided to keep me around, and I’m pretty sure it’s because of the things I learned in Secrets of Screen Acting.)

So. The podcast.

I was recovering an old server, and lo and behold, there were 22 raw, unproduced episodes that popped back up, that I thought were all lost to the failure of one of the server’s hard drives.

But there they were. I post produced them, and listened again, gleefully.

And now…I’m going to celebrate.

I’ve already rebuilt the archive of podcasts to include the 22 newly found episodes, at no extra charge.

Listen to a sample episode (on what to do the first day on set) Listen to another episode (on why eye flashes can help you as an actor)

And I’m making the entire archive available to you, all 292 5-minute episodes, covering everything from matching vocal levels to the size of the shot to why the Brits are winning all the Oscars and Emmys these days, for just $229, a savings of $50 over its everyday price. That’s over 500 megabytes of audio, over 24 hours of glorious acting wisdom, with no commercials, just Patrick giving you everything you need to be a great actor, both on-camera and on-mic.

Just click here to get this special. And do act quickly.

It won’t be around forever, because Patrick’s already put the finishing touches on the 3rd edition of the Secrets of Screen Acting book, which you can also get here, and soon, the podcast archive will return to its normal price of $279.

If you haven’t read the book, or listened to the podcasts, you’re missing out on some of the greatest advice I’ve ever gotten.

And now, there are 22 more reasons to do so.

Hope this helps.

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    David,
    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!
